myself was to go beyond one show. >> and kofi annan. >> all the cruel and brutal things, even genocide starts with the humiliation of one individual. >> i'm honored to be joined by acclaimed poet, activist, actress, professor, icon, the great dr. maya angelou. it's my pleasure to have you here tonight. >> oh, i thank you for that. you've made me sound so good, and i like it like that. >> let me ask you, dr. angelou. you are an inspiration for so many people. who inspires you? >> well, i've been blessed to have had had a grandmother who raised me and a mother and a brother. and they all loved me. they didn't indulge me. but they loved me. and i believe that love heals. not indulgence. but i mean, that condition that's so powerful in the human spirit that it may be what causes the blood to continue to race in our veins. that's what allowed me to have enough courage to be somebody. >> now, you've had an amazing life and you said you still feel connected to young people. explain that. >> in my work whether it's in speaking or teaching or writing or singing or -- i continue to say to young
engaged in every aspect of it. i watched an imac should be your first 2005, with kofi annan is the last secretary-general appeared with orders to blow up the place, but to take this process seriously. so we sharpen his pencil as though they hired a new york law firm to locking to negotiate every point as if it mattered and they hated him for it. the reason is because the dynamic of the u.n. is supposed to be taken seriously, but not too seriously. none of this is quite that serious. ambassador raised started out during much of her. at the u.n. has been in acid or to the u.n., who is liked by the u.n. bureaucracy, baby after ambassadors, but there has been a strong sense that she seized the capital of the world is not turtle bay, but washington d.c. and she spent much of her time during the first term in washington. i think there is a weird sense that bolton hated the institution, but impeached with it at a granular level in which the attitude from the obama administration has been, without the institution, but we've got around to going on. i think it's a very open question at this point
in action during the last sort of spasm of the u.n. reform efforts in 2005, sort of last gasp with kofi annan. he marched in not with orders to blow up the place but take the process seriously. he sharp end up the pencil and they hired a new york law firm like cul vitamin lawyers to lock in and negotiate every point as if it mattered. they hated him for it. the reason they hated him for it because the dynamic of the u.n. is supposed to be you're supposed to take it seriously but not too seriously. right. none of this is really quite that serious. ambassador rice started
without the security council mandate and at that time kofi annan was posing the question, you know, when it is legitimate for like-minded countries, nato in that case, to step up and come in and protect civilians without having the security council approval. >> the r2p standard as it's known is pretty basic. it says that when a country is unwilling or unable to protect its citizens from mass atrocities it is now the responsibility of the world community to intervene. >> i am a strong believer in the doctrine of the responsibility to protect which was adopted by all the world's nations in 2005 and says, "if you are a sovereign nation you have a responsibility to protect your citizens from genocide, ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity, grave and systematic war crime. long-term a world in which a dictator has to think twice before he starts massacring his own people is a world that is safer and better for the united states and for everyone and that by acting under this doctrine we can get to a place where dictators will think twice. >> part of what troubles many people the notion of r

speakers have included former secretary general of the united kofi annan and nelson mandela. >>> wicked weather is pounding the midwest tonight. >> and after four months of superstorm sandy thousands of people are still living in hotels on the government's dime. >>> still up at the pump, gas prices up 35 straight days, the national average for a gallon of regular unleaded fast approaching $3.80. also on the rise mortgage rates, the average for a popular 30 year fixed rate is now at 3.56%, the highest level since last summer, but keep in mind still near record lows. meantime we got this warning from wal-mart, the discount retailer saying those payroll tax hike for social security along with rising gas prices will take a toll on its shoppers and sales this year, but no whining from american winemakers, u.s. wine exports growing for the third straight year. we're selling more vino to canada and china, go figure and americans are slowing down on chowing down, at least at fast food joints. a new study saying that adults get 11% of their calories from fast food, but guess what? that's a decli
by the former us secretary general kofi annan. supported by the likes of the rockefellers and the gates foundation's. it is a dynamic, africa-led initiative to end poverty while safeguarding the environment. in one ugandan village, a trained dealer sold a local farmer seeds and supplies that increased his crop yield 150%. another promising example is the africa project -- it brought together african government donors, the private sector, research institutions, universities, and other african organizations. it is a multimillion dollar effort to fortify soil with increased levels of vitamin a, iron, and zinc to address high rates of vitamin a deficiency across the continent. the fortification of this crop is significant because sorghum is, as most of you know, the second-most important cereal in africa. but it has little nutritional value. it is also uniquely suited to adapt to africa's climate, withstanding both drought and water logging. as a result, fortified sorghum has the potential to improve the diets of 500 million people. in over 30 countries, they relied as a dietary staple. fro
about that dialogue at this point in time. witness the efforts of the first kofi annan and now lakhdar. we are no less committed to it, but at the same time we're not going let the syrian opposition not have its it's ability to have the voice properly heard in the process. and that's what rome is about, and i look forward to rome because i think we're going be able to accomplish something. thank you. thank you. thank you all.

for some time that last summer, late summer, early fall, when the u.n.'s diplomatic efforts, kofi annan, the former secretary-general fell apart, that david petraeus, then the director of the cia and hillary clinton, the secretary of state, came up with the idea that the u.s. should begin to arm the rebels because it became clear the civil war was going to continue. what we didn't know until yesterday was that that proposal then went to the pentagon and the secretary of defense and top military man, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey also agreed with that. the proposal went to the white house. but you know what? the president, there is only one vote that counts. that is the commander-in-chief. he said no. he is not going to do it. really quite stunning. he overruled his entire national security team. alisyn: it sounds like he decided to do that because he thought that the information they had couldn't be trusted in terms of arming the rebels with weapons. who were the rebels. could they be trusted with these weapons. but it is fascinating to see how decisi

element as then-secretary general kofi annan pointed out in the kosovo context. nothing is more corrosive to the credibility of the united states than the gap between rhetoric and action. having repeatedly threatened milosevic with the use of force, the u.s. was, in fact, finally compelled to act because its credibility was at stake. it's important to walk the talk. if we hadn't threatened milosevic so often and so loudly, i'm not sure that we would ever have gotten to the point where the north atlantic council would have been compelled to authorize a use of force. of course, you can't have a military intervention without domestic political backing. i spoke earlier about the albanian-american commitment. they played an absolutely indispensable role in building support for nato's bombing campaign in kosovo. at the same time, you also have to have a bipartisan approach. you know, clinton went to war to liberate kosovo. it was president bush who stewarded kosovo's emergence as an independent country. you had democratic senators and republican senators like bob dole working arm in arm during
